Be Fearless—It's Just Paint
In terms of painting, most of us are interested in changing the colors of our living room, according to the 2013 National Home Color Survey. A room revamp can be as simple as creating an accent wall or painting a pop of color on the trim. Or you can take things to a whole new level, like designer Steven Gambrel did. He plucked the Radiant-Orchid-meets-boysenberry shade from a piece of art and applied it to this entire room, from the walls and the sofa to the exposed beams in the ceiling.
